Playing a pivotal role in many competitive sports, such as roller hockey, roller skating is no longer viewed as a simple pastime. Roller skating has even featured in the Olympics, making its debut in 1992. Other competitive sports to feature roller skates include speed skating, figure skating, roller derby. As well as sports, roller skates have been used in global stage shows, such as Starlight Express and made a huge splash in the disco era of the 1980s.
To improve your balance, you need to work on your leg and your core muscles the most. Any kind of stretches and, also balance boards may be helpful; or you can put your back flat to the wall and go into a sitting position and then make sure that your legs are at a 90-degree angle. A weak lower body is equal to little or no balance on the ice. You will need to work on your arms and upper body as well. Find a point of focus. Concentrate on something in front of you; if you look at your feet, you tend to fall easier. When you glide, do not push off your toe pick, try and push off from the side of your skate. You wont make a scratching sound and it will prevent you from catching your toe pick on the ice and falling. When you glide, you want to bend a lot into your knees and push off the ice hard with your edges.
